Our CampusTheGallery

TheGallery at Arts University Bournemouth offers a unique space in the South West for the arts including design, media  and performance.

Showcasing work from contemporary artists, TheGallery has forged important links with regional arts organisations; including Aspex, Russell Cotes Art Gallery and Museum, Dorset Visual Arts and Arts Bournemouth.

TheGallery also works in partnership with WestBeach, as an additional platform to showcase exhibitions, making the artworks accessible for all and encouraging further exploration of the exhibition programme.

text+work is a gallery initiative that invites artists to develop exhibitions and events. This has forged partnership with writers and critics who provide supportive narrative in the form of published text to accompany the exhibitions.

TheGallery runs a number of artist talks, panel discussions, family days and events to support the exhibition programme.

Admission is free to TheGallery and all its exhibition events.

School Events

We believe that learning doesn’t just take place in the classroom, it happens everywhere. That is why we have created a diverse programme of activities that offers children and young people the unique opportunity to learn about what happens in galleries and see and interact with original artworks. These have included workshops, discussion groups, talks and tours.

Schools can book a free one-off workshop for visiting students. Class sizes should be no more than 30 students per group and workshops usually last two hours. All materials are provided.

Please look at our Current Exhibition and Forthcoming Exhibition pages to see whats up and coming.
